Article description

Original antique copper engraving in old color. Printed and published in "Civitates Orbis Terrarum" published in six parts between 1572 and 1617 by Georg Braun (1541-1622) and Frans Hogenberg (1535-1590). The engraving printed from two plates and joined together. Rome is shown from the west in a bird's-eye view that was a major achievement in its day. It shows the most important buildings and installations, including the Colosseum, Circus Maximus (used for chariot races), Obelisk, Pantheon of Agrippa, Trajan's Column, Roman Forum, Imperial Forums, various hippodromes and temples. The three figures in Roman garb in the foreground underscore the aim of meticulous reconstruction.
